Shreyas Iyer, an Indian batter, has successfully finished his rehabilitation and will be participating in the second Test against Australia. Iyer has been cleared by the BCCI’s medical staff, according to a media advisory issued by the organisation, and will be available for selection when India plays Australia on February 17.
Iyer’s absence did not affect the team during the first Test because team India outplayed Australia the entire time. Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja both displayed impressive ball skills, and captain Rohit Sharma scored a fantastic century.
India’s middle order conundrum could be resolved by Iyer’s selection to the team. In Iyer’s absence, KS Bharat and Suryakumar Yadav were given their Test debuts in the first game. BothPlayers were unable to perform with the bat and rise to the moment.
Australia is anxious to plan a comeback
Team India currently leads the series 1-0 and will seek to immediately assert its dominance when they take on Australia in the second Test in Delhi. It will be intriguing to watch what starting lineup India chooses for the upcoming game. Suryakumar might be excluded if Shreyas Iyer returns.
Todd Murphy, who made his debut in the first game, will be relied upon by Australia once more. The only Australian bowler India had trouble with was the 22-year-seven old’s wicket haul throughout the contest.
Australia will also try to alter its starting lineup. DavidDespite Warner’s lacklustre performance in the first Test, it seems likely that the 36-year-old will have another opportunity in the following game. The squad may have a chance to win the match if they can successfully defend against India’s spin attack. On Friday, February 17, both sides will compete at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi.
